Hello, everyone! I ducked out to South Carolina for a few days to see family. Regular computer access is now restored.
Two links today:
- Scarleteen, the fantastic sex-ed resource, desperately needs donations to sustain their work. If you have a few $, please consider a donation there.
- Some nice people nominated this site for the Bloggies. If you have a few minutes, please vote for CaptainAwkward.com (under “Topical”) and some other amazing blogs. If we win the $20.13 I will add it to my Scarleteen donation.
Dear Captain Awkward:
I am a 14 year old and am a freshman in high school. I’m a guy by the way. There’s this other guy that keeps flirting with the girl I like. He’s kind of my friend but since he’s not in my grade, we don’t really talk much or hang out much. After school, I keep seeing him flirting with her and she talks to him and laughs with him occasionally. It gets on my nerves so bad! I really like her and I don’t like the fact that he likes her and is always flirting with her.
I’m jealous because he gets to spend more time with her than I do. I’m a freshmen and she’s a junior. We’re both in band together and that’s practically the only time I get to see her except in between classes, before and after school. I don’t think she likes me and I also don’t think she likes him. What should I do? I want her and I can’t stand to see him always talking to her and her talking to him. I’m jealous. What do I do and how to I get her away from him? She doesn’t really flirt back with him nor does she flirt with me.
Dear Jealous Guy:
This is hard, painful, visceral stuff, but I’m glad you wrote in.
If you want to go out with this girl, ask her.
